As my dad sat relaxing in his chair by the sliding door leading to the balcony of his room--with his complimentary wine and cheese in hand--he commented on how he was enjoying himself, and that the Avenue Inn was "better than good." This was heartening to hear because my wife and I had chosen the Avenue Inn as our place to stay in Rehoboth Beach with my parents based on our good experience during a previous visit. It's not that that the hotel is luxurious or loaded with amenities; instead, it's comfortable and cozy and makes you feel welcome. For our family, those are the qualities that are most important in a hotel. And, it should be said, that the Avenue Inn has a very pleasant pool, spa, and hot tub area; the pool in particular is a high point for our daughter. Thank you for a wonderful stay. P.S. It should also be noted that we enjoyed ourselves this much at the Avenue Inn when they were under construction; once that's finished, it seems that the hotel will have even more to offer its guests.
